With a heart and a passion for working with all types of learners--but especially visual-spatial and kinesthetic students--I have more than 15 years' experience with educational programs from Core Knowledge to Expeditionary Learning. I am a certified teacher with an endorsement as a Gifted and Talented Specialist. My work with Destination Imagination and numerous experiential models and curricula means my tutoring strategies are creative and active, but I don't leave out critical thinking and organization as objectives, too. I have extensive experience assisting students on ALP's, IEP's and ILP's. My subject specialties are reading, writing, and math, but I will use your interests and strengths to unlock the skills you need to improve, and the concepts you are seeking to understand. Humor and movement are always part of the time we spend together! Join me in a quest for knowledge and learning success.
